Congressman McHenry Weekly Update

Back Home in the Tenth District

I spent Friday morning with Lincoln County Schools Superintendent Dr. Lory Morrow, Principal Shanti Clancy, and the students and teachers of St. James Elementary School.

In the afternoon I presented a FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant check to the Town of Stanley Fire Department in Gaston County. This grant was awarded through the Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters Grant program which is peer reviewed and competitively awarded.

Good News For Our Economy

Last week, we again heard good news about the booming U.S. economy. In the third quarter the U.S. GDP saw higher than expected growth at 3.5% thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The October jobs report was released this week and 250,000 jobs were added in October along with a record number of pay raises. It's no surprise that consumer confidence is at an eighteen year high. Americans all across the country are better off now than before and you can click here or on the image below to find out some more reasons why.

Please join Giulia and me in praying for the Dallas Police Department and the loved ones of Corporal Travis Wells who was killed in this last week's tragic accident. I am always thankful for our law enforcement officials and everything they do to keep our neighborhoods safe.
